Tooth Crown in Gaithersburg, Maryland

Dental Crown Treatment in Gaithersburg, MD

We use digital x-rays and CBCT scans to thoroughly examine the mouth before placing dental crowns. These detailed images of the mouth help us prepare your custom dental crown treatment. We also prepare the teeth and take dental impressions, which we send to a local dental lab. At the lab, technicians use these impressions to craft the crowns from porcelain ceramic. Then, we provide patients with temporary crowns while technicians create permanent crowns.

Once the final dental crowns are complete, we check their color and shape before placing them on the tooth. It will take some time for patients to get used to their crowns, and we recommend that patients avoid hard or crunchy foods directly after treatment. Slowly working from soft to hard foods helps patients get accustomed to their new restorations. 

Dental Crown FAQs

Do you want to know more about tooth crowns and similar restorative treatments? Read answers to these popular questions about crowns below:

Do dental crowns look natural?

Yes, because we use porcelain materials in our dental crowns, they look and feel like natural teeth. We take impressions of the teeth to ensure that each crown matches the color and shape of each tooth. Additionally, porcelain dental crowns offer durability. Patients can bite and chew normally with their porcelain crowns.  

Why would I need a crown after a dental filling?

Sometimes, patients who receive a root canal still have weakened or worn teeth. Dental infections can create cavities in the middle of the tooth, compromising the tooth structure. While dental fillings seal the tooth chamber, dental crowns add more structure to the tooth. Crowns also add a layer of protection against harmful bacteria.

What are inlays and onlays?

Also known as partial crowns, inlays and onlays do not fully cover teeth but address a different part of the enamel. Inlays cover the chewing surface of the tooth between the tooth cusps while onlays cover the tooth sides and chewing surface. Inlays and onlays are separate pieces we attach to the tooth, like dental crowns. Inlays and onlays may be made of composite or porcelain materials to blend in with the smile.
